Your eyes are not playing tricks on you.

This is the coolest thing I have used in dang, I don't know how long.
With first punch I was sold.
Thanks J.

Purchased March 27th.

during the kids naptime i made these.

the little things.make a statement.
Playing catch up with Elise's paper project.
Dang I have missed doing these.
Figured I would use some of Jamie's scrappy leftovers while patiently awaiting the arrival of this month's SIS collection.
It's a purty one. So calm and subdued.
Just like me after a glass of wine.

and so it was.

The Happiest place on earth.
This place always lives up to the hype.
It was a day full of sunshine.
Suckers.comparing ears.
and my personal favorite...
The Main Street Electrical Parade.
and now reliving it with the kids does my heart good.
Real good.

Together we will accomplish so much.

His 7 month mission: Our freedom. My 7 month mission: To keep the kids and I happy and healthy.

and dabble in something new creativly.


Creative outlet therapy if you will.

To keep contsructive while he is away.

To make something to pass the time and have as a pleasant reminder.

Create a feeling of accomplishment.

any ideas?

lay like broccoli.

make it homemade.
and eat up on breakfast for dinner.
Among other random things.
That's how we are spending our days.
I promise to be back soon with crafty stuff, but for now I am stocking up on the family together time.
Because 7 months without it, is way too long.

Never did I think the day would come where I would enjoy wine.

March 1st was the day.
An imprompto trip up to Los Olivos wine country did it.
Or maybe 7 wineries down, it all tasted just fine.
I am more of a sweet white wine kinda girl.
and Anthony, more of a Syrah red kinda guy.
My favorite were the Daniel Gehrs wines by a longshot though.
So I think this Friday night will be spent re-watching Sideways and enjoying a bottle of wine.
Who would have thought.
